Hosting in Flower/Rock Anemones

Anyone have a clown hosting in a flower/rock anemone (Epicystis crucifer)?
I adopted a large true perc yesterday and he is orbiting the flower anemone, obviously trying to host but I think the sting is too strong. Any experience with flower anemones and clowns would be appreciated.

Here's my A. Ephippium that took quite a liking to an epicystis crucifer.



Pretty bad pic. This was taken while the anemone was spawning (notice the white stuff... didn't last long... fish food).

I eventually moved the anemone to a different tank and the clown then moved on to some xenia.

Thanks for the tip gastone. Did it take a while for your clown to get used to it?

My friend's clown always stayed just under it, rubbing the base.

Not too long if my memory serves me correctly. No more than a few weeks. She called the anemone home for about 6 months (give or take) before it was moved.

It has settled into my hex tank and hasn't moved in probably two years. I've got a pair of GSMs in there, but they call the RBTA home and have never even ventured to that part of the tank.
